A Bathing Ape x Transformers Convoy Black

20120421-102135.jpg

A Bathing Ape’s no stranger to the world of collaborative toys. While Medicom Toy and the Bearbrick has long been the quintessential form for a BAPE toy, the Japanese but now Hong Kong owned streetwear giant re-appropriates the classic Optimus Prime through this Convoy Black Version (Convoy is the Japanese name for Optimus Prime). While not fully murdered out, you get an idea of the theme as the Chief Commander loses his signature red and blue colors in favor of a muted aesthetic.

Bape x Transformers Optimus Prime

After official news of Bape and Transformers collaboration earlier this year, the Bape x Transformers ABC convoy has been released. The signature red and blue of Optimus Prime has been redone with Bape’s camouflage design but still looks impressive when transformed into an Autobot. A great addition to Bape and Transformers fanatics, we now just have to wait for the release of the collaborative T-shirts that feature Bape’s monkey alongside Optimus Prime. To be honest the Optimus Prime is amazing the t-shirts are rubbish!
